About the Brain Mind Institute

The Brain Mind Institute (BMI) was one of the first institutes established after the formation of the School of Life Sciences at EPFL. Contributing to and supported by the technological foundation of EPFL, Brain Mind Institute Laboratories work to understand brain function and exploit this knowledge to advance human brain health and develop improved intelligent machines.

We are grateful to advice from the Scientific Advisory Board of the EPFL Brain Mind Institute: Prof. Barry Everitt, Prof. Sten Grillner, Prof. Michael Häusser, Prof. Christof Koch, Prof. Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg and Prof. Carla Shatz.

The Brain Mind Institute has established collaboration agreements with partners both within EPFL and with leading neuroscience research centers in Europe, USA and Asia.  These links promote international collaboration and expand the training opportunities for EPFL neuroscience students and researchers.
